and large ideas. i'm no theologian, though i've written about religion, but i find them stimulating. i--i like being stimulated by those very large ideas, about the meaning of life and whether there is god and what is god, if there is god, and what is the relation of organized religion to morality. all of those questions tantalize me. c-span: jumping from your alcove one and that group way beyond to just a few years ago, you write about, at the american enterprise institute, having lunches every day with robert bork and nino scalia and laurence silberman and then jude wanniski. what was that all about? >> guest: well, i was--i had taken a leave of absence from my teaching at nyu, a sabbatical, to learn economics. i felt at that point, economics was becoming important. up until that point, i assumed that lor--john maynard keynes had said everything there was to say about economics. but once we got stagnation and inflation at the same time, it was quite clear that someone had to revise economics. and although i knew i couldn't do it myself, i--at least i wanted to understand what was goi
religion has exclusive control over it on the eligible doctrine. >> if this redefines marriages, local schools taught it in second grade. parents had no right to take their students at a class or be informed when the instruction was going to take place. >> claim is misleading. they are referring to a case where a second grade teacher read the class a book in which to princess married. but his son was in kindergarten at that time. he brought home a book called who is in the family. it was not required reading. the parkers filed a lawsuit, but it did not challenge the use of the books. they wanted the school to provide prior notice so there's some could opt out of class. the case was dismissed. court records indicate the notification statute requires public schools to notify a parent when their children are taught about sex or of human sexuality. court papers indicate they were promoting the tolerance of different types of families, including those with same-sex families. >> it could be taught in local maryland schools. >> this claim is false. there is no direct link between question 6 a

religions that are completely welcoming of marriages. episs copal church is a very good example. so what we're talking about here is really the granting of a marriage license by a civil institution. going down to city hall and getting your civil marriage license. while i completely understand and honor the caller's concept of not wanting to judge and wanting to treat all equally, at the end of the day the only way that we achieve that is by offering all americans equal protection under the law. and really only a civil marriage license when it comes to the recognition of our families provides that. so it is important to hold on to the concept of wanting to protect all americans. and i would continue to engage with the caller and really kind of all thoughtful fair-minded people that are on this journey. but what i would offer is that if we really are true to the concept of equality in this country and really wanting to treat all americans equally, and there's a thoughtful conversation of the issues at play and we don't want second class institutions for some and kind of different treatment, i

to it. i think that relation, not just the catholic church, but faith and religion are misrepresented in the major media. first of all, you can present your own opinion on fact, as fact, because why? as long as you're talking about religion, religion is totally subjective and the not based on any truth, no matter what you say, it's okay. what's an example of that? this last week, bill collar of the new york times wrote an article how to die, it was all about end of life care. the suggestions he made was that the reason we're not able to, as a society, get to a point in which our loved ones can die peacefully is because the catholic church would never allow such practices to occur. meaning what? a suggestion that the catholic church would require a family member to go to extreme means to keep somebody who is dying alive. it's simply not the truth. but, nobody stands up to it because you know what? as long as you're talking about religion, as long as you can offer any opinion you want and pass it as fact because religion itself is purely subjective. >> clayton: what about during the vic

protector of freedom of religion and speech after making that movie. i saw how some of the family and kids were ridiculed. thank god it wasn't today because it was really pre-twitter and all of that. i was really alarmed by some reactions to be honest with you. we hadn't really expected that. host: what documentaries? what's the motivation? how much of it is a business versus you just like this medium? guest: it's a terrible business to be in. if i was financially motivated, i would be doing something like reality television, god forbid. no one gets into documentary motivated by the business allure or the financial allure. although, we do make a fine living at it. but, really, it's rachael and my co-director and i, we share an incredible curiosity to learn and it's incredible gift that we're giving to be able to pick up the phone, knock on someone's door, go to someone's community and say hi. please talk to me because i'm trying to tell this story. we ended up meeting people and experiencing things that most people never will. we never would. part of it's a little bit selfish because you

you blame everything on it now. >> dana: what you are seeing is the last gasp of the green religion. it's a sad thing to see when you are on current tv a your boss calls up and you have to agree with evening he says. mm-hmm. absolutely. absolutely. unfortunate because it stunts the conversation about how do we diversify our energy sources and improve the transmission system. >> kimberly: energy independence. >> bob: you are starting to get me to question my conclusion on this so i'll wait for flat earth newsletter to make a decision. >> kimberly: you are a flat earth society. >> greg: that is all he got. what do you think? isn't this is a way to get government in your pocket? >> kimberly: embarrassing because the facts aren't there to support it. why the stretch? why the gaffe to try to survive like delay have a life support trying to cling to it. meteorologists, anyone who is credible and can count. >> dana: also a way to kill colds. that is the goal. if you're in ohio, west virginia, pennsylvania, remember that. this is the goal. no more coal powered plants. >> eric: al gore makes
, grover norquist, can't touch revenues, the neocons, the religion right. does he have to check back because he doesn't have a personal core? >> right. and so, you know, if they won't buy it in brown, let's make it in blue. that sort of business mindset i think he brings to everything he does. and so, you know, they wanted severely conservative rhetoric during the primary, so he gave it to them. now he thinks they want different rhetoric. >> campaigning in ohio vice president biden pointed out as romney plays up his bipartisanship, he may find his biggest headaches come from his own party. as i was suggesting. let's listen. >> ask them the question, when have you ever seen governor romney take on the establishment of his party? what do you think prospects are that governor romney would attempt to do any of the things he now says he supports? what do you think the chances of him doing that with the republican-controlled congress? what do you think the chances are he's going to tell the people, you know, you're dead wrong. that's basically what he's saying now. >> grover norquist is th
a mormon. well, this country was founded on different relidges relidgens and mormon is a christian religion. so would people rather have a muslim -- host: the spt not a muslim and i think you know that. but let's talk about the subject of religion north carolina being a big state on the bible belt and what's the feeling as far as you've been able to see regarding governor romney and his mormonism in north carolina? guest: first of all, i would just like to say that i agree with nancy to the extent that this country was founded on religious freedom so i do not think that someone's religion could come into the conversation in a negative manner. and as you stated president obama is a christian and not a muslim so that's something that needs to be made clear. it just happens to be that he's a christian and that's what he is. but that's a conversation that we should not get into the weeds on when that's not supposed the crux of our election when we are a country that was founded on our religious freedom host: our next caller is from william. caller: how are you doing? guest: well. how are you? c
heretical they couldn't even imagine really the key not it is a common religion. the father of bashar al-assad had a muslim religious practice in order to become president of syria. they are quite far apart. but they share common ideology. syria has supported iran during the iran-iraq war because they hated iraq at that time. syria and iran share anti-americanism and the israeli attitude don't want a domination of architecture in terms of security of the region. so that's the shia crescent. the second is a growing sunni crescent but they still lack the pinch. this is saudi arabia's game. the crescent goes from libya for each of i'm too jourdan through the southern part of the western part of iraq and onto saudi arabia and down to the coast that i called the oil gold coast. we see selassie fighters, moving from libya and across saudi arabia, to iraq and into syria increasingly to join the victorian water. the opposition in syria is increasingly being joined by these extremist forces, which is one of the reasons it's so difficult for us to support them. saudi arabia and qatar are providing
, not necessarily, you know, the hindu religion. are you saying on those grounds it would be okay then? >> if they strip away that and if that's an accurate statement which we heard, then the exercise will continue and there is no lawsuit. i agree on that point. >> it's based -- >> the allegation is -- it's a little more than nam ma stay. it's a little more than that. >> okay. no. it's -- believe me, if the guy is for real, let them file the federal lawsuit. not going to happen. he's going to lose. >> we'll see. >> until then they get to continue on. let's talk about another case, this one involving a famous family name, the kennedy name. douglas kennedy, tenth of 11 children of robert kennedy. he's being charged with child endangerment. the trial is under way. he was in a hospital, he wanted to remove his day's old baby from the hospital and the nurses allege that he got violent with them. he actually removed the bracelet, the security bracelet from the child and said he wanted to get some fresh air. richard, you first. this is in your backyard there in new york. what is really at the

to be built in their state. host: she brought up religion, so let's talk about the role of churches, parishes, synagogues can play in the campaign and whether they are allowed to contribute. guest: they're not criminals not contributing directly to the campaigns, just like a corporation could not contribute. so we're not seeing money come directly from religious organizations. but certainly people's beliefs, people's attitudes toward important political issues are sometimes if shaped by their religious beliefs. and they have been important to populations -- they have been important population, people you can rely on in the election, since they are older and have certain religious beliefs. but they cannot play a financial goal. host: john is a democrat. caller: i just wanted to say that bush, romney, and the republicans have set up this tax structure which helps these companies take our jobs overseas for cheaper labor. and the internet will also suck up a lot of jobs in the coming future. you can have a job almost anywhere, so all the tax money but being received, i believe, is going to go to
of religion here. but we're less directed by spirituality because in the past we have little history of our days being shaped by acts of god. someone once told me part of my the bible belt is spiritually minded is they have a farming tradition and acts of god have a direct impact on their lives. new york isn't like that but we have gained considerable experience over the past 11 years on how to pull together after tragedy. so there will be families without power and homes damaged by trees and we will help each other out and dig out and move on because that's what family does. anyone who thinks new yorkers aren't a community that looks at itself as a family doesn't know new york. sure we might toss a few elbows in line at whole foods, but what family doesn't fight sometimes? family is supposed to fight, and then come together in crisis and that's what we'll do in the face of sandy. all right. that does it for "the cycle." my brother, martin, it's yours. >> thank you. good afternoon. it's monday, october the 29th, and sandy is due to make landfall in just hours. >>> america bunkers down from
candidates. as a catholic how has your view on abortion been shaped by your religion? >> i'm a catholic. i'm es in pailian so i guess i can't answer that question. >> your shus husband is a catholic. >> i'm episcopalian. we raised our children as catholics but i would be happy to talk about my view on abortion. my view on abortion is that it should be safe legal and rare. >> this is a valid point that is and a difference that is between us that is not manufactured. we have babies in america and iowa that are being aborted because they are baby girls balls the mother want as boy instead of a girl. we have evidence of that. it is coming in from the asian community as well. we have legislation that prohibits sex selected aworks. she says she thinks it is ridiculous to talk about it. i think it matters. i think that it matters to the little girls that are being apwrted. election day is one week away. find key races from across the country on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org/campaign2012. "washington journal" continues. >> we are back with scott keeter the director of survey research. unders
port authority police, my fire department. nobody stops and asks you what your religion is, nobody stops and asks you what your political party affiliation is. folks are just rolling up their sleeves, getting to work. so what you're seeing in the field, what you're seeing with residents, with emergency responders, is what we should be seeing with all our elected leaders as well. the president of the united states, our governor and really, dozens of local elected leaders of all parties across the state, we're all pulling together. we're all in the same foxhole, all fighting the same enemy here. it's not refreshing, frankly, that's the standard that built america in the past and will help us forge forward in the future. >> we're hearing that there have been as many as six fatalities now in new jersey. that death toll may well rise. there are many areas people can't get to. what are you hearing about people who may be trapped or areas where these services have simply not been able to get to them? >> that's the crisis. that's what has me concerned. the storm may have passed but the cha
to their guns and religion, the kind of white working-class workers that the president is having the most trouble connecting with. the obama campaign is advertising as well. they have a turnout machine in philadelphia. pacs don't want the obama campaign to gin up their turnout machine. i think that machine will start to get engaged and that machine will drive president obama's margin down there. that's in southeastern pennsylvania. host: we're talking about an october surprise in campaign 2012 and the history of it. this on twitter -- guest: she's probably right. many people aboard a voted. there is 1 weeks ago. the average american is paying attention to something other than politics, whether it's their own economic situation or recovering from storm damage in a swing state like virginia or new hampshire. -- many people have voted already. ballistics of trying to get around the place after a storm can be a real problem -- the logistics. it's not like either of these guys will have a game changer. the next couple days will be focused on not doing something stupid around the hurricane and
him. >> bill: religion crew. >> disparagement. joe the plumber doesn't. he doesn't have a pickup truck. there seems to be a real dissociation between him and the hoypaloy. >> bill: do you think it has to do with grievance. in some african-americans african-american communities there are grievants to whites that aren't pathetic to their cause. that might be driving a little bit of it. there are some african-americans who believe that the reason they are not prospering as a community, all right. is because society hasn't done enough and the reason it hasn't done enough is because of rich white guys? >> no. i don't think of it like that with obama. i think of him as one was those swells who looks down at people aren't up to speed intellectually with him. i don't get a color thing off of him. i know that crowd: they sit around and they, you know, they have jack henry abbot and norman there. >> and canopies? >> and all that stuff. >> bill: you have ever had a canopy at your house? i don't even know what a canopy is. >> the thing you put over the picnic table when you have burgers. you put
